Four useful steps to make an angel halo

 

An angel Halloween costume would not be complete with a halo! Follow these four simple steps for an angelic look everyone will be talking about!

These are the necessary items you will need to be successful in your halo-making quest:

  • Thin white boa
  • Thin wire (any colour! 20 gauge thickness)
  • Thick wire (any colour! 12 gauge thickness)
  • Glue gun (Don’t forget the glue sticks – and be careful!)
  • Headbands
  • Scissors

Step 1:

Take one piece of the pre-measured thin wire (approx. 18 inches) and bend it into a circle. Fasten the two ends together by bending each into a loop and connecting the loops. Make sure you twist the ends like twist tie to ensure that they don’t come apart.

Step 2:

Wrap 14 inches of the thicker wire around the middle of the headband two or three times. This part isn’t very particular, just make sure the wire doesn’t wiggle around. It should look like there are antennae sticking out from the headband. If you find it difficult to make it stay, use a glob of hot glue to secure it, otherwise just bend it as tightly as possible. Then bend the ends of the “antennae” down to create little hooks.

Step 3:

Hook the thick wires around the thin wire circle (creating the circle base for your halo). Then, tightly wrap the thick wire hooks around your thin wire circle; try to make it so the wire circle can’t slide around. Doing that is practically impossible so plug in that glue gun and stick another glob wherever you think is necessary!

Step 4:

Take 24 inches (amount will depend on how fluffy your boa is) of your thin fluffy boa of choice and glue the end of it to the tight spiral of thick wire on your halo. Then wrap the boa around the thin wire circle, making sure that you are using it liberally enough to not let any wire show. This amount will vary depending on how many feathers have fallen off the boa. Make sure the hot glue is dry and then stick that sucker on your head and prance around like the angel you are!

So there you have it, a really easy way to make an angel halo! Enjoy!

[…] We love to dress up at our book club parties, so if your book club does the same, be sure to whip up some of these easy-to-make angel halos for your guests.  All the materials can be found at a craft store and it took just 5 minutes to put one of these halos together.  This idea was found at usedeverywhere.com.
